Covered in this course

The General Workshop Safety Training course is broken down into 3 sections.

1) Your Workshop

This section looks at employer and employee responsibilities, the hazards that may be present in a workshop and the common types of accidents which happen in a workshop. It also looks at where PPE, permit to work and health surveillance might be needed in a workshop. 

The General Workshop Safety Training course looks at many potential hazards in detail, objects that could cause injury and the types of accidents that are common but could easily be avoided.

2) Safety Signs

This section looks at the importance of safety signs, explaining what the different types are and what they mean. Something so simple can go a long way to improving workshop safety. 

Safety signs are an important part of workshop safety and are covered in the second section of the General Workshop Safety course.

3) Preventing Accidents

This final section covers the basic workshop rules - the things that must ALWAYS be done to prevent accidents and the things that should NEVER be done. Downloadable PDFs of the DO’s and DON’Ts of Workshop Safety can be printed out and displayed.

You will be given the knowledge needed to prevent accidents occurring in the workshop
